This week we revisit our conversation with Sabriye Tenberken - a woman who
gives new meaning to activism and inspiration. Born in Cologne,
Germany, she became blind at age 12. A trip to Tibet as a young adult
was life-changing. Sabriye, along with Paul Kronenberg, founded Braille Without Borders,
a world-wide organization that creates training programs and Braille
book printing houses. The two are also the co-directors and co-founders
of Kanthari, an international institute for social visionaries based in Kerala, South India.
Sandi Klein's Conversations with Creative Women returns with an all new show next Tuesday.

Most of what we eat, drink, use every day of our lives comes packaged in
petroleum plastic, which is designed to last forever. Only a paltry 5%

the 5 Gyres Institute, which researches plastic pollution across the
world's oceans, while engaging communities in finding solutions. You
can't afford to miss this conversation with Anna Cummins, the group's
Executive Director and co-founder.
